It’s in my nature to try to help others and though I don’t particularly think I’m qualified to do so in anyway way, I’m more than happy to share my non-professional, non-medical, perspective, opinion or point of view to try to help anyone in need.
I found a post on this site after googling the term ‘emotions’ as I’m currently writing about this topic. I found the feedback and perspectives to be very interesting. I was going to respond to that post, but thought it better perhaps to start a new one on the topic, with the caveat that anything posted may be used in my writing, with the appropriate reference of course! ;-) I’m interested in anything (I mean ANYTHING! :-) anyone has to say on the subject of emotions/feelings (How many exist? Which? Are they good/bad/positive/negative? Can they be either? Which are opposite/similar? Are they voluntary/involuntary? Can we change their associations?, etc…)
The previous post I refer to above was initiated by user/member (not sure which is the correct term yet, sorry) ‘charm’, with some great responses. The two which captured my attention the most being, ‘betta’ and ‘Hope’. I believe the keyword in that post to be ‘perspective’ and I will go back an make a comment with regard to that, before starting my own :-)
I look forward very much to any feedback and to being able to help in any way I can.

If you claim a political party affliation, which is it?
None have ever earned nor even attempted to earn my vote.
Which religion (if any) do you follow?
No organised relgion. Man is corruptible, Religion should not be, therefore who could one possibly trust with the 'Religion' one believes in, other than oneself ...or once every so often, this is transcended by beings who embody Religion, such as Jesus, Muhammad, Moses, Ezekiel or Oyasama (these are just examples people, there isn't enough space to list them all and my knowledge in this area is VERY lacking!)
